When Gothamist thinks summer, we think of Sundaes & Cones. While for some that's just ice cream, for others, it's Royce Chan's newly relocated, but long-revered ice cream shop, now on E. 10th St. between 3rd & 4th Avenues (formerly in Sunset Park). Homemade ice creams and sorbets that don't break the bank are served in standard vanilla, chocolate, and cookies n' cream, but more obscure flavors really make the indulgance worth it. We recommend the ginger (with spicy bite), red bean, green tea, and subtly sweet honey ginseng. Others might like the mango, lychee, pineapple, or corn, though honestly, we prefer our corn roasted the way Cafe Habana does it. A small dish or cone rings up at $2.75, a medium at $3.95, and a 3-scoop large for $5.15 while fresh fruit smoothies (made with ice cream) are $4.50 for a small, $5.50 for the large. Never one to complain about a new ice cream shop, Gothamist warmly welcomes all the Sundaes and Cones that come through these doors. What Sunset Park lost, E. 10th street has surely gained.
Sundaes and Cones is located at 95 E. 10th Street. (212) 979-9398. Open S-thurs, 10:30 a.m. - 11:30 p.m., Fri & Sat., 10:30 a.m. - 12:30 a.m.
